Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 385
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
Hey! I’m back! Kinda.
I’m positively with no doubt in my mind having the weirdest summer of my life. 50% of me wants to sprint off, and the rest wants me to put down some new summertime roots and spiff this place up with some new enhancements the house needs. Can you relate?
Maybe I should book a fall vacation so my anguish comes to a final halt…
I think old habits are just squawking at me. Being gone so many summers in a row is telling my mind I should not be home. Facebook reminders do not help do they?!
Time will tell what transpires I suppose. So for the short term, I’ll be putzing around making stuff and landing new finds on the curb, like the giant chalkboard yesterday… it filled up the back of my truck! Are you following me on Instagram HERE? Be sure to watch for the live stories from your phone that are only up for 24 hours. I use it frequently and shared the chalkboard find.
I’ve also been busy selling down some large items loosening up even more room. I’m still on a vengeance to claim every inch of my space!
I also have some new improved patio ideas I’d like to implement, thanks to my little getaway location. I’ll be sharing all that soon as I gather up all the right pieces.
I also will be sharing my adventures of my little getaway soon. I just wasn’t ready to land on both feet once home quite yet. The holiday hiatus hit so I listened.
Sheesh… talk about therapy 101. Speaking of… I also chatted about How to live life after a crisis… hope it reaches those that need it!
Wow. It felt good to ramble again! Nothing like a preplanned event to get you back into the swing of things. Nice chattin’ with you!
So! As you know there was no party last weekend, so this party should be double the fun, right?!
Here’s what you brought to the party 2 weeks ago…
If you love the look of a vintage washboard but don’t want to pay the price or can’t land one, here’s how to make one. From scratch. Using a tin can. I kid you not. Genius!
This reclaimed wood vase showcases some clever wedding themed secrets, however I’d like a few for every day of the year, thankyouverymuch!
I KNOW you are eyeing up this piece as diligently as I did thanks to that description. Hard to imagine isn’t it? Super inspiring tutorial and over the top cool outcome!
Easy stacked outdoor pallet sofa by The Boondocks Blog
Because outdoor furniture does NOT have to be expensive nor difficult to make. I like the way you think, Mary!
Non rotting summertime strawberries. To organize your summer reads perhaps? So stinkin’ cute AND clever!
Denim Belt Loop Cuffs by Vintage with Laces
Why did I give away my old jeans to the thrift again?! These cuffs are AMAZING.
And a few other clever ideas…
If you find a little bench, garden it up with this simple idea! A message is everything.
THIS patio space inspired me, because it has a place for everything. And I mean everything! I mean, where would you even sit first?
Got wine crates or even scrap boards? No reason you can’t break them up and make a bazillion of these instead in an afternoon! So beachy!
